Emotional Eating

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Emotional Eating always sneaks up on me. It seems like I don't realize it until a little damage is done, then I'm discouraged and just continue. Yesterday I found out the mom of one of my school friends (elementary-high) passed away. It didn't really set in until the kids were in bed and I was on my own. I had already run my nutrition report after dinner because my intention was that if I craved something I would just drink herbal tea. I was within my range for all four categories. Then it hit and I grabbed two handfuls of trail mix - which is not bad for you but put me over my ranges for the day and then I went on to tortilla chips. Wish I could recognize what's going on earlier and re-direct myself. I tend to do this more when my husband is out of town which he was last night.

My boo hoo is over! Snow is starting to melt! Ready for a new day!

    I speak from way too much experience - It sounds to me like you have already started to recognize it... The first step, figuring out that is what you are doing. (even if it happens after the fact) Soon you will know what is going on between the trail mix and tortilla chips.... Next you will know when you are walking to get the trail mix. Give yourself credit, you know what happened...
